The seeds and husk of Plantago ovata of Plantaginaceae are used in traditional and modern systems of medicine. The aim of this study was to evaluate the cytotoxic potentialities of aqueous suspension of Planago ovata husk on Vicia faba root tip meristem cells using a cytogenetic approach. Treatments with various concentrations of Plantago ovata husk suspension to Vicia faba root meristem cells showed mito-inhibition and induced several chromosomal aberrations.
